Although there are still two feature updates a year, in order to make way for the Windows 10X system, this year Microsoft adjusted the major update to the second half of the year, and the Windows 10 21H1 launched in the first half of the year is still focused on BUG fixes.
Although this feature update can be considered an oversized cumulative update, the features of Windows 10 21H1 have been adjusted in some details.

Windows Hello interface on the Windows 10 login page:
In this feature update, Microsoft has made improvements to Windows Hello. If your device has a built-in Windows Hello camera, but you plug in another Windows Hello compatible camera, you can now set the external camera as the default Windows Hello certified device. For example, you bought a monitor with a built-in webcam, which is very useful.
Windows Defender Application Guard:
The feature update also includes performance improvements to Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG), including fixing a problem that opening certain Office documents may cause a delay of more than one minute. This can happen if the file is accessed via a universal naming convention (UNC) path or a server message block (SMB) shared a link. Robocopy’s performance is also improved when copying files whose total size exceeds 400MB. Finally, fixed an issue where a WDAG container may use nearly 1GB of memory when it is idle.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI):
Microsoft has made some improvements to the Group Policy service in Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to better adapt to remote office scenarios. Previously, changes to user or computer groups might take some time to propagate, which meant that when an administrator tried to generate a report, the results of group policy changes would not be displayed.
As you can see, the Windows 10 21H1 feature update mainly optimizes remote office scenarios. Microsoft said that because of COVID-19, it did not release a major feature update this spring, and the update it made was to address the most urgent requirements it heard from customers.
